2802architects Sopa Lodges Deck

The Serengeti Sopa Lodge has undergone an extensive refurbishment and will open in May 2024 under a new brand – Explorer by Elewana. Serengeti Explorer will offer the same number of rooms as the previous Sopa property, with 68 well-appointed explorer rooms and six suites. All rooms will have a private balcony offering the famed Serengeti views, and configurations will cater to couples, friends, families, and special groups of all sizes, with interconnecting rooms and rooms with wheelchair access.

There will be a wide selection of dining options, ranging from a Chef’s table located within an extensive wine cellar with an on-site sommelier, to a Boma restaurant offering a bush dinner of African and Swahili signature dishes under the Serengeti Sky. In addition, a main restaurant, poolside bistro and bar, and deli and coffee shop will all serve up a delicious array of dishes celebrating the farm-to-table culture.

Serengeti Explorer aims to offer guests a fully immersive holiday experience, with a plethora of activities introduced aside from the game drives. A children’s bushcraft centre will cater to families, while an outdoor cinema will show African movie classics as well as more current releases.
African culture will be a central theme in Serengeti Explorer, with an art gallery showcasing local talent and local crafts available for purchase in the retail centre. A creative photo studio will be equipped with useful technology and an on-site expert to ensure that guests take away their best images from the experience. Walking safaris with experienced guides will also be available. A Star Gazing deck with an on-site astronomy guide will allow guests to enjoy a galactic night safari under the sparkling African sky.
